Drove around the corner and could not believe my eyes. Had to go around the block so the navigator could have a look ! A later visit to the supermarket without the caravan and photos were taken of this marvelous nature feature. the Black and white collar is a hit. A must see when in Albany.

Around for millennia, Dog Rock figures significantly into the Aboriginal dreaming stories and the history of the area. Glad they preserved it and made it part of the community. They've even painted a collar around its neck.

On the main road to Middlelton Beach so no cost or effort really to see it. Has a bit of a bow wow factor.

Get a look at this rock. If you're a dog lover like me you'll almost expect it to bark at you. Don't get too concerned with the nearby shopping centre that takes its name.

Not a must see however you pass it every time when you drive in or out town. We didn't leave the car for it.

I think my wife and I must have driven past Dog Rock three times without noticing it. Later, when we were looking at postcards in a local store, we came across one of Dog Rock and we both exclaimed, "Oh, we've seen that!"

Lovely face of a dog as seen by the Aborigoni people. Really looked life liked. This attraction was found in town, where I would have least expect to the find such a beautiful natural rock looking like a dog

As has been said, it is a rock near the middle of town between a shopping centre and a motel which has a passing resemblance to a dog's head. That's it. A drive past on the way to Middleton Beach is about all it warrants.
